at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response to the foreign response

up and gave this very extreme speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sara palin's not very popular in this country, especially with certain constituencies that they are trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time, in large part because sara palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sara palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa that he's going to need for his base. >> sure. >> so he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very difficult spot there. does liz cheney do harm saying that sara palin is more qualified than obama and biden combined? >> that was kind of over the top. she was trying to clean up for her old man and show her loyalty to sara palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea party was at the utah state party convention in 2010 when they took bob bennett, the

very long years of george w. bush and dick cheney. part of the republican wisdom about what happened in 2008 is simply that john mccain wasn't disgusting enough. that john mccain wasn't willing to indulge that enraged batty old ladies of his audience who heard somewhere that obama is an arab. part of the republican establishment thinks the lesson of 2008 is john mccain was too decent. if you wallow with the birthers and he's a secret muslim folks, if you run your campaign out of the comment section of youtube videos about the panama canal and the muslim brotherhood taking over the state department, part of them thinks that's how you win. the question is are they right?

last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen

by the word choice, what he says or also by his body language? no one can forget president george w. bush 9/11 when he was in front of the classroom and you could see the demeanor of the president once we learned that information that he received the demeanor of him. that was as indelible as any word could have been. >> there is no dou the pictures here, the television matters. the sense of empathy that a president is able to convey by what he says and how he acts these are important things. i think going forward it becomes more important in terms of how he shows that he is a healer for the country. this is especially difficult now that we are in the middle of a very contentious political season where the president and candidate romney are not being very much healers. they are going at it and fighting pretty hard a moment like this makes that kind of politicking that much more discorted. >> very appreciated. >>> a lot of us are counting down to the olympic games. the opening ceremony is friday. the summer games are challenging athletes. it is also coinciding with the muslim holy month. it m

since 1988 when george h.w. bush carried it that year. look, we see the likes of joe biden now spending a lot of time in pennsylvania. let's not forget, go back to 2008, wolf, when president obama back in 2008 said that very ill-fated phrase. he said people are clinging to their guns and their religion. that is something that will not play very well in pennsylvania. but also in pennsylvania it also shows that in fact when you look at these numbers right here as far as television advertising right now, we've seen barack obama is spending money right now. more than $3 million right now, wolf, he is spending on tv advertising so far to carry his message. >> yeah. he doesn't want to take any chances. by the way, he said those less than artful words out in san francisco. >> he did. but it carried back. >> everybody heard it immediately all over the place. thanks very much. >>> take a look at this. we have some live pictures of the president of the united states in sandusky, ohio. there he is at the top of your screen in the middle there. he's shaking hands, meeting with folks. the president

and norah that was something no one would have expected in 2005 when president george w. bush put him on the supreme court and that was something that not even the conservative justices expected back in march when the court heard arguments in this case. i am told by two sources with specific knowledge of the court's deliberations that roberts initially sided with the conservatives in this case and was prepared to strike down the heart of this law, the so-called individual mandate, of course, that requires all americans to buy insurance or pay a penalty. but roberts, i'm told by my sources, changed his views decideing to instead join with the liberals. he withstood-- i'm told by my sources-- a month-long desperate campaign by the conservative justices to bring him back to the fold and that campaign was led, ironically, by justice anthony kennedy and why that's ironic is because it was justice kennedy that conservatives feared would be the one most likely to defect but their effort, of course, was unsuccessful, roberts didn't budge, the conservatives wrote that astonishing joint dissent

president george h.w. bush, about 18% in cuts. and then former president clinton. clinton did start to increase defense spending during his term but it still ended lower than where it was when he took office. another thing that stands out to me about this chart is defense spending. it's higher now than it was in the cold war or even during vietnam. it looks like it was higher during world war ii although there were extraneous spending items then. but the chart is courtesy of the center for american progress and the department of defense. so when you look at that, you have to ask the question, do the claims of national security disaster add up when it comes to the sequestration? i asked that question to someone who should know the answers. >> sequestration could have a devastating impact on our overall economic condition. you ntioned 2 million jobs lost. that could raise the unemployment rate on a national level by about 9%. we're talking about both defense and non-defense jobs. sequestration impacts both elements of the budget. >> so help me understand because i've heard that argume

counsel, top lawyer ben ginsburg, representing george w. bush in the florida recount in 2000. it's not the first time he's been dispatched to a convention by the romney folks, but we have noticed when his name comes up in the news reports, it's invariably in connection with efforts to wrangle ron paul supporters. wrangle ron paul supporters who are trying to take over the state and delegates for themselves. for whatever reason, this weekend, the romney campaign sent its top lawyer to the nebraska republican convention. when the two sides squared off in nebraska this weekend, what happened? the ron paul folks, very excited for their last chance to be the camel's libertarian nose wiggling its way the to the main stream republican tent, and the romney campaign dispatching their top staff to hold the tent firmly in place, to keep the camel out. what happened this weekend in nebraska? the camel got smoked, and that's a quote from the omaha world herald who described the ron paul revolution as failing to materialize this weekend in nebraska. quote, in the end, the paul revolution in ne

close. interesting in the point when john kerry was running he outraised george w. bush at the time. >> she did work for kerry but there are gripes but the party is uniting around mitt romney and especially on the back of the supreme court nomination where they raised a huge amount of money in 24 hours and he has a big boost and sounds like she is adjusting expectations downward and it sounds like romney a hundred million dollar month with rnc money and not including superpacs. we know this is a billion dollar election. this is going to be big money. >> big money on both sides. >> big money on both sides. >> i thought her comment was important. it's easy to say, oh, you know, some guy who is in trouble running a bank is bundling for the other guy. the problem you had a guy on your side too. the bundlers tend to be very wealthy and very connected. often wall street people. >> exactly. as you pointed out neither party has a monopoly on virtue or vice. for every time there is a co corzne. >> a verdict in the case of a man who beat up the priest that he says abused him nearly three deca

there. the media says a lot of things about mitt romney. in 1987, george h.w. bush, when he was vice president at the time, "newsweek" did the exact same thing. look at the article they did in 1987. they asked whether he was too wimpy to be president. this got under the bush family's skin. this is a different sort of media environment. back then, the cover of a news magazine having much impact in shaping a narrative in a presidential race in 1987 was probably much stronger than it is today, john. mitt romney will probably be same. >> george h.w. bush won, by the way. he may have been a wimp, but he won. >> also, the republicans succeeded in making michael dukakis the wimp in 1988, not george h.w. bush. so in the end, the wimp thing didn't really matter. >> we have news on the democratic side. we're waking up to news that bill clinton is going to be speaking on wednesday night of convention week in charlotte, the primetime speech that wednesday night, nominating president obama. looking at the long complicated relationship between the clintons and obamas, this is a particularly big de

returns. george w. bush released 17 years of tax returns during the course of his career. partly because of the complexity of the modern code and tax avoidance at the top, which i think is a big problem. one of the ironies here is that you're advocating a 19% rate, which would, of course, be a tax hike for mitt romney. we should be clear in 2010 he paid 13.9% effective rate and 2011 estimate. so, on that, i can get, i can, you and i can find a little sliver in the diagram of common ground, which is that mitt romney should pay more in taxes, right? >> you know, the problem with those statistics you put up, chris, you know this, that how does mitt romney make his money? he makes it through investing, through bain capital. he owns stock. you're not including the money and if you include the corporate taxes. >> in the cayman islands so they don't pay any money in taxes. that's the whole point? why do you think they put them in the cayman islands? because they want the money to go to the beach. >> look, i don't know what he's doing with this cayman island money, what i'm talking about the inv

w. bush results in those with the best political connections getting their hands on the most money. because the guys who can hire the former members of congress as their lobbiests are not mom and pops. the tax breaks were handouts. the guys who were going to get their hands on the pie are the guys with the lobbiests. >> i think really i don't like the idea that obama grew the government. we had the worst recession since the great depression. and what was a strategy was to increase government spending and put more money back in people's pockets through increasing unemployment insurance which was done every time we enter recession which is the worst recession. we spent a lot of money to deal with a problem that obama inherited. i don't think you can leap from that and say this is a guy who can build a giant government. he is a pretty small government kind of guy. i think once we get out, completely out of this recession and once we start getting the economy, once the economy looks like it can manage on its own you are going to see the cutbacks. >> and projections in terms of governme

of what republicans did during the george w. bush year. it was actually a negative job growth. but he gets to just sort of toss this out there. and in our fast-paced media environment, very few of us challenge it point by point. and he puts himself forward as this successful businessman with a magical elixir, which is why the obama campaign is aggressive in trying to get the ba capital stuff out. there the outsourcing and outshoring. in this period of time, it's a race to frame romney in the eyes of the american people. >> part of this is about defining what we mean when we say successful businessman. i have an appreciation for small business people. i was thinking about black community folks who owned funeral homes and barbershops and bultty salons. folks start with little capital and make something. i have enormous respect for that and feel like we can learn a lot from folks on that. that is not what bain is and the businessman story of mitt romney is. >> this tells you wha his vision is. his vision of the economy is the vision of having a bunch of really powerful, really concentrated co
